Jim Dorris of Belvoir Avenue said he got a call from someone claiming to be his grandson saying he had been arrested in Atlanta.

The "grandson" put his "attorney" on the line as well.

Mr. Dorris used Western Union to wire the money, then he became suspicious.

He called his grandson, who said he was not in jail and not in Atlanta.

A call to Western Union confirmed that the money had already been picked up and was long gone.

Police were summoned to a gas station on Shallowford Road after the clerk said a heavy-set black male got angry over 20 cents worth of gas.

A customer saw the man loading a gun.

By the time officers arrived, the man had driven off in his white Lexus.

Officers also had couple's counseling duty on Booth Road.

The woman of the house said her boyfriend came home after work and found her in bed. She said he ripped off the covers and demanded to know why she had not fixed dinner.

The man acknowledged he was upset, saying he was the only one working and the least she could do was prepare his meal.

The couple agreed to sleep that night in separate bedrooms.
